    The simplest method, provided you have a router in your home which you use to share an internet connection with multiple devices, is to just block a single domain with the address ‘https://rad.msn.com/’

    If you don’t have a router that can block specific domains, you can follow a trickier method that involves using the free OpenDNS service.

    - Sign up for an OpenDNS account (it's free).
    - Add a network for your current IP address.
    - Go to Advanced Settings and next to 'Domain Typos', check the box 'Enable typo correction' if it's not already checked and apply.
    - Got to Web Content Filtering settings and set the filtering level to 'None', and under 'Manage individual domains', put rad.msn.com and select 'Always block' and then click 'Add domain'.
    - On your Xbox, go to System Settings -> Network Settings -> (your connection) -> Configure Network -> DNS settings -> Manual, and enter the OpenDNS IP addresses for the primary and secondary DNS servers: 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220.

    I don't like ads, however I don't like empty ad spaces even more. So I will be keeping mine the way it should be when I get live.

    I hate the ads as well. I disabled the ads and I don't have an empty space there. Instead I have a green square with a few avatars in them. It's much better.
